Quo Custom Library

WHAT IS CUSTOM?

Just about everything you can imagine falls under the heading of “Custom.” Any time a program is designed to deviate from the standard Core architecture, it’s considered Custom.

The germ of most Custom Programs begins with a simple question or request. Sometimes a school, an individual or a group of teachers will think, while looking at a great Core Program, “this is allllmost perfect…”

Maybe you think a trip should include an additional destination, a new experience, or it should have more days. Maybe you want the experience to cater to a specific focus, such as science, wildlife, service, language, history, the arts or a sport. Maybe your school wants any of our programs, but with a faith-based focus. Quo can accommodate all these requests.

The itineraries on this page are examples of Custom Quo Itineraries we have developed for leaders. This is an ever growing library – as we develop new programs for you we will add them to this list. Use it to be inspired and contact us to develop your own unique travel program. Happy dreaming.
